Landscape conference to debate future development strategies

Place making, measuring the cultural, economic  and societal benefits of landscape, and looking at how landscape can improve lives are some of the subjects that will be discussed at an international conference will take place in London later this year.

The Valuing Landscape conference has been organised by The Landscape Institute, IFLA Europe and the University of Greenwich. It will consider what kind of developments should be built in the future, and will include the opportunity to visit regeneration sites in Greenwich and Thamesmead.

 “The greatest value of landscape is the way in which it connects people, place and nature. That is why the Landscape Institute, in partnership with IFLA Europe and the University of Greenwich Department of Landscape, is holding its 2018 conference on this crucial theme,” says Landscape Institute CEO Dan Cook.

“This landmark conference is going to help us identify how landscape interventions can deliver the greatest possible good for people, place and nature. It will also help us voice the demands we must make of governments and policymakers worldwide, asking the questions – and delivering the answers – that put landscape at the forefront of positive global change and informing environmental and planning policy across the world.”

Valuing Landscape will take place on 6-7 September 2018 in Greenwich
